ARIZONA [2-1] v. UTAH [3-0]

Utah gets a tougher test this weekend when they leave the state of Utah to take on Arizona. Arizona hasn’t looked great this year though and Utah is the favorite headed into this evenings game.

Brian J. Moore: Utah

Joe Londergan: Utah

Leo Castaneda: Utah

Marcus Russell: Utah

Robert Ingle: Utah

Travis Johannes: Utah

CAL [3-0] v. USC [3-0]

No one thought Cal would be undefeated at this point going into their showdown with USC. With a tough non-conference schedule featuring North Carolina and Ole Miss many expected Cal to struggle and spend the year rebuilding. USC on the other-hand just escaped with a victory over Texas last weekend. USC is the heavy favorite but don’t be surprised if Cal continues to surprise people.

Brian J. Moore: USC

Joe Londergan: USC

Leo Castaneda: USC

Marcus Russell: USC

Robert Ingle: USC

Travis Johannes: USC

Washington State just dominated the Beavers and now they get the winless Nevada squad at home. Expect Luke Falk to put on another show for their home fans.

Brian J. Moore: Washington State

Joe Londergan: Washington State

Leo Castaneda: Washington State

Marcus Russell: Washington State

Robert Ingle: Washington State

Travis Johannes: Washington State

Saturday, September 23rd (7:00 PM PT, FS1)


The Huskies head to Boulder Colorado and will see how they look against a good Buffs team. Washington is favored and undefeated, but they haven’t exactly looked unbeatable in their first three games.

Brian J. Moore: Washington

Joe Londergan: Washington

Leo Castaneda: Colorado

Marcus Russell: Washington

Robert Ingle: Washington

Travis Johannes: Washington

This Arizona State squad has looked bad this season and are considered huge home underdogs against the Ducks this weekend. Let’s just say the staff at BTD are Sun Devil fans this week.

Brian J. Moore: Arizona State

Joe Londergan: Oregon

Leo Castaneda: Oregon

Marcus Russell: Oregon

Robert Ingle: Oregon

Travis Johannes: Oregon

Saturday, September 23rd (7:30 PM PT, ESPN)

STANFORD [1-2] v. UCLA [2-1]

This might be the trickiest Pac-12 game to pick. Stanford looked bad last weekend in losing to SDSU; but they are playing at home and UCLA is coming off an upset loss of their own. I think we’ll find out a lot more about these teams on Saturday.

Brian J. Moore: UCLA

Joe Londergan: Stanford

Leo Castaneda: Stanford

Marcus Russell: Stanford

Robert Ingle: Stanford

Travis Johannes: Stanford
